 Health Insurance as per IRDA

The term ‘Health Insurance’ relates to a type of insurance that essentially covers your medical expenses. A health insurance policy like other policies is a contract between an insurer and an individual / group in which the insurer agrees to provide specified health
insurance cover at a particular “premium” subject to terms and conditions specified in the policy.

A Health Insurance Policy would normally cover expenses reasonably and necessarily incurred under the following heads in respect of each insured person subject to overall ceiling of sum insured (for all claims during one policy period).

a) Room, Boarding expenses

b) Nursing expenses

c) Fees of surgeon, anesthetist, physician, consultants, specialists

d) Anesthesia, blood, oxygen, operation theatre charges, surgical appliances, medicines, drugs, diagnostic materials, X-ray, Dialysis, chemotherapy, Radio therapy, cost of pace maker, Artificial limbs, cost or organs and similar expenses.

Sum Insured
The Sum Insured offered may be on an individual basis or on floater basis for the family as a whole.

Cumulative Bonus ( CB) in standard health Insurance Policy.

Health Insurance policies may offer Cumulative Bonus wherein for every claim free year, the Sum Insured is increased by a certain percentage at the time of renewal subject to a maximum percentage (generally 50%). In case of a claim, CB will be reduced by 10% at the next renewal. Now few companies are offering Guaranteed No claim Bonus as well 150% No claim Bonus.

• Cost of Health Check-up
Health policies may also contain a provison for reimbursement of cost of health check up. Read your policy carefully to understand what is allowed.

• Minimum period of stay in Hospital
In order to become eligible to make a claim under the policy, minimum stay in the Hospital is necessary for a certain number of hours. Usually this is 24 hours. This time limit may not apply for treatment of accidental injuries and for certain specified treatments. Read the policy provision to understand the details.

• Pre and post hospitalization expenses
Expenses incurred during a certain number of days prior to hospitalization and post hospitalization expenses for a specified period from the date of discharge may be considered as part of the claim provided the expenses relate to the disease / sickness. Go through the specific provision in this regard.

• Cashless Facility
Insurance companies have tie-up arrangements with a network of hospitals in the country. If policyholder takes treatment in any of the net work hospitals, there is no need for the insured person to pay hospital bills. The Insurance Company, through its Third Party Administrator (TPA) will arrange direct payment to the Hospital. Expenses beyond sub limits prescribed by the policy or items not
covered under the policy have to be settled by the insured direct to the Hospital. The insured can take treatment in a non-listed hospital in which case he has to pay the bills first and then seek reimbursement from Insurance Co. There will be no cashless facility applicable here.
Additional Benefits

Insurance companies offer various other benefits as “Add-ons” or riders. There are also stand alone policies that are designed to give benefits like “Hospital Cash”, “Critical Illness Benefits”, “Surgical Expense Benefits” etc. These policies can either be taken separately or in addition to the hospitalization policy.

A few companies have come out with products in the nature of Top Up policies to meet the actual expenses over and above the limit available in the basic health policy.

• Exclusions

The following are generally excluded under health policies:
a) All pre-existing diseases (the pre-existing disease exclusion is uniformly defined by all nonlife and health insurance companies).

b) Under first year policy, any claim during the first 30 days from date of cover, for sickness / disease. This is not applicable for  accidental injury claims.
